I agree that many really tall guys seem to date really short women...? Do they think maybe they can physically dominate a much smaller woman?
I would agree that it's difficult in some situations..hard to dance with someone so much shorter, for one thing, if you're doing any sort of waltz or other traditional ballroom dancing.
I understand that people fall for each other regardless of their relative size. It just strikes me that it's so COMMON to see really tall guys with much shorter women. Wouldn't they generally tend to pick women their own size, most often? But it doesn't seem that way.
I think a lot of guys are insecure, and being with a much smaller woman makes them feel more 'manly' , especially if they still identify with traditional male roles--carrying everything, holding doors, etc--., where a woman their own size wouldn't need so much help with those things!
A much smaller woman allows them to more naturally play this traditional male protective role. She really would have difficulty carrying heavy things, holding the door open for herself, and so forth.1
